FARR can send   selected text as a parameter   to any other programs, if this program support command line parameters.

many programs, such as Windows Help Center, do not support comm. parameters.

maybe someone can write script for
adding "PASTE" and "Enter" key pressing after lunching such programs

you can tell farr to paste text into the current program.

as an example, type into farr: paste

i cant remember if farr pasting supports \n for simulating Enter, probably not.. but i could add that if needed.

sorry mouser me for spending your time with my bad English...

I have created in Hotkey section :
run paste %cliptext% C:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\HelpCtr.exe \n

yes \n supported in FARR edit box, but can FARR send Enter-pressing to HelpCtr.exe

the built-in paste command in farr won't send text to an arbitrary window -- for that may i suggest that the solution is to find a commandline tool that can do this, and just invoke it from farr.

perhaps someone can suggest such a commandline tool that could be run from farr?

I can add that to WinSendKeys, I'm away for about an hour now, and then I'll have a look at it.

Added -c, -cc and -cn options and released WinSendKeys 2.6

I updated the other thread (at the end, but the rest is important enough to at least see) with all the relevant info and an updated download.
